   csmath has kibitzed 8239 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-28-18 Tata Steel (2018) (replies)
csmath: Of course one cares about tie-breaks. It is about the historical record. The one who wins is recorded as a winner of the tournament. Money is pitiful anyway, less than 10,000 euros for shared first. Magnus probably received more for appearance fee.
   Nov-25-17 FIDE Grand Prix Mallorca (2017) (replies)
csmath: MVL has improved in the past 3-4 years, just like Ding or So. But now his problem is how to keep this form consistently and use it to qualify for WC match. Nowadays the top competition is intense. In late 1970ies you had perhaps 4-6 players with abilities to challenge Karpov, now it ...
   Mar-25-17 Borislav Ivanov (replies)
csmath: Looks like Borislav will have plenty of time for his chess hobby now. Forging diplomas and driver's licences was his real job, chess was just a passion. :-)
   Dec-01-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
csmath: The best player in the world is still the world champion so that is about the right thing to happen.
   Apr-20-16 A Giri vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2016 (replies)
csmath: MVL has Giri's number.
   Mar-27-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
csmath: <What opening will Fab play needing to win with Black? Anyone have a guess?> It will be either Sicilian or Ruy Lopez. But Karjakin could try to avoid e4 altogether which would be probably more interesting anyway, in my view.
   Jan-22-16 Carlsen vs Tomashevsky, 2016 (replies)
csmath: Clean game, Tomashevsky self-destructs. Typical positional win.
   Sep-28-15 World Cup (2015) (replies)
csmath: It is great That Peter is again in the Candidates. Unlike many younger players he actually brings something to chess concepts and theoretical discourse. In the past chess always had leading practical theorists who would never become champions. Not a bad role to be in.
   Nov-23-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
csmath: It is not precise to say that Anand has no killer instinct. I think differently. I think he has a killer instinct and he displays that often BUT he lack a pitbull jaw. :-) Meaning there are times he releases grip and allows opponents to escape or let his advantage escapes. Sort of ...
   Nov-21-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
csmath: You can move faster when you play some no name player but you do not move fast when you play for WC against Magnus. That would yield no good. Going for a draw in a complex position when you have no much time left is a responsible decision.
